The maintenance window went a little longer than planned, running about an hour instead of the 20 minutes I had expected. OK, a few things here...
First of all, the forum is now running on the current phpBB code revision, 3.0.7-PL1. This improves some issues with ATOM feeds and a few other things here and there
Second, the RLF style has been updated to use the Quick Reply. The six or so people using proSilver would have been able to use it if they had seen it in Forum Games. However, now that it works in the RLF theme, it should be a little more widely used. Please note, however, that it is still considered somewhat experimental, and is enabled at the moment in only a few forums, including General, C&C, and Forum Games. We'll see how it goes from there.
Third, there are some new BBCodes, including one requested long ago for YouTube. Again, experimental, and we'll see how things go. However, it's subject to somewhat less abuse than QR, so it will probably be OK.
Fourth, you've probably noticed that I've started some cleanup of the megathreads, starting new ones in a couple of cases. Additional new ones will be started, and I will begin paying closer attention to them and breaking out those that seem to be material for their own threads. I encourage people to consider posting new threads instead of using the megathreads if there's a reasonable chance that the discussion will range a bit. For example, a question about which new car to buy shouldn't go into Stupid Questions. Hopefully, we'll be able to continue picking up the conversation a bit.
Finally, there's something up with the avatars. I don't know what it is, and I'm working on it, but it's also quite late, so I may not get it fixed tonight. You're welcome to re-upload your avatar if you have it around, but I may be doing a file restore on the avatar directory, so if you change it to something new (or even if you don't), it may get reverted and/or broken again. It may be as simple as a binary re-upload of the avatars from backup (which I made before starting the upgrade), or there may be something more to it. We'll see.
Feel free to discuss the new features here. If you find anything other than the avatars that doesn't seem to look or work correctly, please make a note of it in the Support forum
If I show up at your door, chances are you did something to bring me there.
